Police chiefs launch recruitment drive

Have your say

Police chiefs in Derbyshire are recruiting again in a bid to boost the number of bobbies in the county.

Applicants can take part in the first stage of the recruitment process between 10am on Tuesday, May 6 and 3pm on Friday, May 9.

The first stage is a compulsory online assessment which needs to be completed by all external applicants and checks eligibility to apply.

If approved candidates then need carry out two further online assessments checking whether they have the skills and aptitude to be a police officer.

A Derbyshire Police spokesman said: “All candidates who demonstrate in Stage 1 that they are eligible to work as a police officer will be invited to take the assessment test at Stage 2.

“As we only have a limited number of application forms to allocate for places on courses in 2015 onwards, we are looking for the best candidates.

“We are not able to accept applications from serving police officers to transfer to the Derbyshire Constabulary.”
